We loved them and have heard only glowing reviews from the guests. Warren’s 75 year old aunt is asking if she can buy their CD! The dance floor stayed packed and everyone had a great time. Could not have asked for a better band. Thank you again!

Everything was AMAZING, as we expected! We just absolutely love MPH and so many of our guests are STILL talking about how amazing they were. I told them afterwards, I wish they played more in bars and public events because I would totally be a groupie!! Thank you so much for everything you did to help coordinate. Will absolutely be recommending you and MPH to anyone I know that's looking!

Potato Head killed it! We absolutely loved the band and they did an incredible job at our wedding!! Even closed out with the grooms favorite song. I will say at that point everyone freaked out and a lot of head bobbing happened. They were incredible and couldn't have asked for a better band.

As a big live music fan and with picking the band being one of my main/only big responsibilities in wedding planning, I really wanted to nail the choice. Could not be happier with Mr. Potato Head. They CRUSHED it. Phenomenal band, great group of people, such great music to dance to. Their range and proficiency is absolutely top notch. Would 100% recommend

WOW! What a performance! Just celebrated our 3rd daughter's wedding 3 days ago and I still can't find the words to properly describe what an outstanding performance Mr. Potato Head put on. It is no exaggeration to say that the dance floor was filled the entire night. Our guests (age range 14 to 84) were even dancing between tables. From Sinatra to Bruce Springsteen, with Al Green, David Bowie and Randy Newman (and many more) thrown in, these guys NAILED IT. On top of it all they were very easy to work with and so accommodating. Thank you Doug, Morgan, and the rest of the band! I hope to work with you again soon.

It was fantastic in every way, couldn’t have been a more perfect celebration. Mr. Potato Head was a huge reason why. MPH is incredible, they exceeded my expectations and MC’s (which were high) and dozens of guests raved that they are the best wedding band they’ve ever heard. We couldn’t be happier with their set, tight playing, interaction with guests, etc. They also ripped an awesome rendition of Purple Haze for our entry - it was epic. And one of my buddies got to play drums on Beast of Burden. Case in point, one guest texted this towards the end of the wedding, haha: “My man is this a wedding or a concert 😂! Love this” So all in all, truly don’t think we could have picked a better band.

Hire this band! Do not waste another second going back and forth, thinking about whether or not they're worth it or if you should just go with the DJ. HIRE THEM! They played a great mix of easy listening tunes during dinner and then got the dance floor moving, all night long. Guests continually complimented this band, whether they were getting a drink at the bar or texting us the next day. And my favorite part, as a stressed bride who was just over making decisions? I DIDN'T HAVE TO THINK ABOUT ANYTHING. Once we picked our songs to walk into and share our first dance, that was it! The band did the rest and it. Was. Great. Do it and thank me later!

When my daughter and her fiancé started planning their wedding the most important aspect of it was the music. They chose Mr. Potato Head after listening to MANY bands on line and hearing many friends recommendations. They were absolutely amazing. I don't remember going to a wedding where the dance floor was always full. We had to move tables to enlarge the dance floor! The music appealed to the entire crowd . If you want the best band around for an event at a reasonable price, this is the one! Thank you Mr. Potato Head for being the "kick ass band" Melissa wanted for her special night - you did not disappoint!

Mr. Potato Head was everything we were looking for in a wedding band - they absolutely crushed it! Doug was super easy to work with from start to finish. The set list they put together kept the party going and we were SO grateful that they played through a long set given that our dinner went longer. We have had so many guests comment on how awesome the dance floor was, which was exactly what we were hoping for! We couldn't be happier with our choice to have Mr. Potato Head at our wedding, thank you so much to Doug and the boys, yall killed it.

Do you want the best band of all time to play at your wedding? Do you have impeccable taste? Do you want to dance like an idiot all night long? Do you want to fist pump while on your knees at the set closer? If you answer yes to any of those questions, you need to book this band. They are consummate professionals and know exactly what they are doing the entire time. BOOK THIS BAND. Thank you for the best day ever guys!


Apr 30, 2021

FANTASTIC. Fun, interactive, accommodating... and extremely talented! Opened with a second line, played all the classic favorites, but also nailed the more obscure songs that a music buff appreciates. That's what we had heard - so the groom hired them on the spot, ha! - but they totally surpassed every expectation. MPH set the tone, kept that vibe going until the very end and left everyone impressed. I think every guest - and vendor! - has asked us about them since. Forever grateful and would recommend them 100 times over. (Trust what they say - keep the horns!)


Jan 23, 2021

Mr. Potato Head was such a hit at our wedding. They went above and beyond to really make it a special experience and I am so grateful for that! They are VERY talented musicians. They really stand out from other weddings we have attended. We were on the dance floor all night. We have gotten soooo many compliments from guests. Y'all are the best!!! Thank you for putting on an amazing show.

The group loved Mr. Potato Head. I have heard no complaints and many positive comments. They were great to work with on an individual basis (down to earth, no crazy requirements/riders, or excessive personalities). Morgan and the band were friendly and professional. I will let you know if I hear any additional comments, but they are a group that we will keep in mind for future events in that area.

Mr. Potato Head was excellent. They played the exact assortment of genres and songs that we had hoped, and did so with great skill. I can't tell you how many guests have told me that the band was incredible. They were fun and easy to work with, and set the tone for the evening. We asked them to learn a few songs for the dances, and they executed them perfectly. The only way we could be more pleased is if we weren't pulled in so many directions during the reception and could have given more attention to enjoying the music!

Through out the whole process ECE was helpful in assisting us in finding the right band for our debutante party, and afterward the band members of MPH were so accommodating. The party was made because MPH brought in fresh, different music vibe and totally fun time. They are clearly talented musicians and have a vast range, playing more contemporary hits to the classic party fare. I asked them to learn a Hootie and the Blowfish song and they sounded exactly like the original artist. I cannot recommend this band strongly enough. No crowd will be disappointed. We were so happy we had them for our party.

Doug and Mr. Potato Head were FANTASTIC. The only people who were not dancing were the sick, the lame and the infirmed. One of our guests in his late 70s who walks with a cane, chucked his cane at his table and was twirling around several women. We had a fair number of guests, both men and women, come stag, and they were mixing and dancing with everyone. The vibe was so amazing, there were no strangers in the entire room. The band was playing requests from the audience, songs for our NOLA guests (“Big Chief,” “When the Saints come Marching In” where the trombone player came down on the dance floor and we did a second line with handkerchiefs waving.) It was the best party I’ve ever been to! How cool is that? I had a really nice visit with Doug, Bobby and Morgan at the end of the night and I think they had as much fun as the audience. The guests came primed to dance (thanks to really clever invites by my artist friend) and the energy from the guests fed the band, and vice versa. It was a upward spiraling party vortex! Super fun! I wish we had the means and the occasions to do this every year!! So much fun and Doug and his group made the evening. We had (and I’m still getting) a zillion compliments on the band. They were over the top. One of my good friends (who was having SO MUCH FUN) texted me the next morning and said, “It’s official. Chris and I are quitting our day jobs and becoming Mr. Potato Head roadies. We’ll be the Tater Tots!” Ha ha. Can’t thank you enough, Barry, for your help in facilitating this awesome band. Bravo and a standing ovation! Cheers,

Doug Jervey and the entire band did an amazing job at our wedding in Charlotte in late June 2018 and we highly recommend them!

Our family and friends were on the dance floor the whole night and had a great time as a result. Do yourself a favor and hire Mr. Potato Head if they are available!

To have a great band at my wedding was a priority for me. We also had guests at our wedding from as far as California, New England, and New Zealand - all who were ready to party. Our primary contact, Barry Herndon was able to book MPH for us with much enthusiasm and support. The band leader Doug, was professional and fun to collaborate during our discussion on music for the reception. At the reception itself the dance floor was never empty, and after dinner it was ALWAYS full. Everyone left my reception sweaty, happy and jazzed for the send-off with my now Husband! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Doug and MPH! Our wedding reception was unforgettable.

For a band who will keep everyone on the dance floor LITERALLY the entire night, look no further than Mr. Potato Head - they ROCKED, even when my brother and I insisted we rap "remix to ignition" (poorly) together on stage, instead of just playing during their break, they insisted on backing us up. They even kept the cringing to a minimum when we were awful, and got the party going again once we were done. They made the party at the reception SO great. I cannot say enough good things about these guys. They have such a wide range of music, and have so much talent. Such a fun band, such good vibes. They know how to read the room. I just told them a little about what music Matt and I liked, and that was that! The bomb.com. Give 'em a call.

Mr. Potato Head is fantastic as you know. Did intros and dinner set 630 to 8 and then 830ish-1030ish rocked the last two hours of dance music. Very professional and just a lot of fun. Everyone loved them. Rain never came so we had the doors open and had a great party. Mr Potato Head played a significant part in making everything special. MPH is as great as we knew they were. I'll try and send them and you some videos when available. Thanks for your help. Doug, Morgan and the rest of the band were amazing and super friendly and professional. Thanks for your help. I would highly recommend Mr. Potato Head and East Coast Entertainment to everyone that wants a memorable event.

They were AWESOME!!! They crushed the mother-son song by the Jackson 5 and hit notes that I only thought baby Michael could hit! Many of my friends had DJs at their wedding and although I knew we wanted a band, I was getting nervous the week leading up that people wouldn't dance. Mr. Potato Head kept the dance floor popping!! People I thought would never dance were cutting a rug! They had the young and the old dancing! We got many comments that they were the best wedding band that they have ever seen!! The band was also great to work with!! I have heard stories that bands can be needy and demanding, but not Mr Potato Head!!! They were so accommodating and were just so happy to be part of my day! They never once added any stress to my wedding, they were a dream!! David, thank you for encouraging us to book with them! I know you had them at your wedding and you were right!! They were the best wedding decision that we made!!

Sep 17, 2016

Mr. Potato Head was absolutely INCREDIBLE at our wedding!!  The band was exactly what we were looking for and they went above and beyond at our reception.  Since you only get one shot at your wedding, we were nervous about picking the right band.  We wanted an upbeat, fun, energetic band that could play fun hits, along with motown, classic rock, etc., and they nailed every single song in a seamless playlist that got better with each new tune. 

Our guests were so impressed by their versatility and lively execution. One man in his early 60s had, and I quote, "the best night of his life" and chose to stand the entire dinner while air-drumming along to every song!  Standing alone.  Air drumming.  While his wife ate alone. J  ** The one thing that stands out the most about our wedding, is that every single guest continues to rave about the band: Mr. Potato Head **

Overall, Mr. Potato Head had the most amazing energy and musical talents that had our guests dancing the entire night.  We give them an A+++ rating and could not have been happier with the outcome.  The band was terrific from start to finish – with my friends declaring "we need this band for our wedding!!"  Our wedding would not have been nearly as fun, full of energy and loving memories without Mr. Potato Head's musical talents, so thank you MPH!!

Mr. Potato Head was everything we could have hoped for in our wedding band. They were easy to work with, both before and on the wedding day. I had wonderful phone conversations with Doug in the weeks leading up to the wedding to discuss our vision for the music and the day - he was so open to hearing my thoughts and also adding relevant, great suggestions. On the day of the wedding, I could really tell that the band had taken my vision into consideration, the music was exactly what we had wanted (a mix between oldies/beach music and more contemporary songs)! The guests were packed on the dance floor until the night was over and were even asking for band encores - we owe it all to Mr. Potato head, they were awesome! We have had so many people since the wedding telling us that it was the best wedding band they had ever seen and even people asking if the band might travel to the Midwest to play at their weddings. I cannot say enough great things about this band, they made the day so special (and easy) for us!


Sep 03, 2016

The band was absolutely amazing. They played a great variety of music with unbelievable skill and expertise. They had the crowd going from start to finish and everyone commented on how much fun they were. They also were very professional and excellent to work with. I would highly recommend them to anyone and would use them again in a second. Thanks again for following up and for all your services. 


Aug 13, 2016

Mary and I had an incredible time jamming to your music.  You guys were so spot on that multiple people told me they thought a jukebox was playing during the cocktail hour.  From a music lover who wanted something different than a Motown funk band, you delivered.  Your variety and your musical ability is awesome.  We really appreciated that you took the time to understand our musical taste and that you crafted your set list to fit it.  Thanks for making it such a special event.  5 stars and we’d give you a glowing recommendation to anyone considering booking you.


Jul 16, 2016

The people at The John Marshall Hotel said this was the wildest wedding they'd ever seen! The band was fantastic and I'd totally recommend them!  It turned out fabulous - a "10" all the way around.  They played The Allman Brothers for the Father/Daughter dance like we requested and nailed it. They were gracious to let a good friend of the family sit in on singing lead on a song. Just great.  If you ever need a reference for Mr. Potato Head or EastCoast Entertainment, please let me know.


Jun 25, 2016

We had Mr. Potato Head perform at our June wedding in Charlotte. I cannot stress enough how AMAZING they were. It was 95 degrees out, and they still had the entire wedding out on the dance floor for 2 hours. They only took one break for dinner, and didn't complain about the heat once. I had several people tell us how awesome they were and ask how to contact them for their own weddings/events.


Jun 11, 2016

I don't see how we could have made a better choice for a wedding band than Mr. Potato Head.  From the music you played during the dinner (people were coming up to me to tell me how awesome you were- the musicianship in the band is unparalleled ) to the nonstop dance party that ensued later, you guys had it all covered.  I can't tell you how many people have called, emailed, or texted me about how they just couldn't leave the dance floor. From Steely Dan to the Talking Heads, to Old Crow Medicine Show - you guys just nailed every song, no matter what the genre. Having my daughter, the bride, join you for a few songs made the night even more special. My only disappointment was that there were so many other songs on your playlist that I wanted to hear you do!  I guess I'll just have to find another excuse to get you up here again.

I am picky when it comes to music. I grew up in a musical family and music has always been a foundation in my life. That translates into: For our wedding day, I needed an incredible band that played the spectrum of genres (and played them well) and kept the energy high so people remained on the dance floor. I couldn't have asked for a better band than Mr. Potato Head!! They played such a broad spectrum of songs that all generations were on the floor dancing - From classical jazz to beach music to Motown and Funk to 80s alternative to Americana to modern (among others not mentioned). It's clear that MPH has played together for years. Their synchronicity with each other and their ability to work the crowd and keep the energy high made our wedding reception perfect - it was as good and better than what I had imagined for our wedding day. They are classy, willing to work closely with you to understand your musical tastes, and they are definitely not cheesy (as some bands can be). At the risk of sounding like a cheesy infomercial, if you are looking for the perfect band for your event, you will love MPH and so will your guests. The bride gets complimented on all sorts of things on her wedding day, but the most compliments I recieved were for picking such an amazing band. It's all about the music!

MOORE weddings are always filled with special requests and surprises. Doug and the band gave us everything we needed and more. From learning several special songs he may or may not ever use again to performing the coolest hippest dinner set I have ever witnessed to closing the night with a non-stop 2 hour dance set, these guys couldn’t have been better.

My daughter and her fiancé are on a plane to Australia and New Zealand for a 2 week honeymoon. She called me last night to thank me for getting her this band.  Her friends can’t stop talking about how incredible they were. Thanks to the band for helping make this a truly Unforgettable Experience.

I echo Michael's sentiments :) I have to be honest and say I had measured expectations for how this part of the evening would go, but Mr. Potato Head completely blew me away! I was just so happy to see every guest, from my seven year old cousins to my 89 year old grandparents having fun on the dance floor. I kept trying to walk away to chat with guests but a favorite song from the playlist would begin and I would just turn around and keep dancing. 

Thanks again for everything, Stacy! I know you were such a great resource to Michael and my parents.

Oh man, Stacy - we absolutely loved the band! They exceeded my every expectation for how great a wedding band can be. The dance floor was packed the entire night! And Doug executed the timeline to perfection - didn't miss a beat. (It wasn't the easiest of timelines to work with either.)

Please pass along our thanks to the band - they helped to make our special night perfect.

Doug - You guys were AWESOME and really helped make our day perfect. I got a lot of compliments about you all. I loved how you all would start playing the next song while you were finishing up the first song...built up a lot of anticipation. Both you and your guitarist had some sick solos too! Anyways, thanks again for everything! Will definitely pass your name along to any of my friends looking for bands!

My wife and I hired Mr Potato Head for our wedding in Washington DC. Doug was very helpful, communicative and responsive during the planning phase, and the band sounded amazing during the event. Guests are still raving about the music at the reception!  The sound quality was excellent in a very large hall, and the set lists kept the dance floor filled. I would highly recommend Mr Potato Head for any wedding or other event.

When my now hubby and I were looking at bands to perform at our wedding, we knew what we wanted but weren't finding it. Then, we clicked on Mr. Potato Head. Aside from the amazing fact that Danny Ray - the man who introduced James Brown for 40 years is on their promo video (my hubby and I are HUGE fans) - they are such a tight band with an amazingly diverse and interesting song list. From the dinner hour to the first dances (they learned and played our Elvis song beautifully!), to the garter and bouquet toss and to the over 2 hours of continuous jamming, they had our guests on the dance floor all night! In fact, when they ended, one of our guests threw down his tie and demanded an encore! I've never seen that happen at any party much less a wedding. Doug was incredibly easy to work with and so patient - he took the time to discuss with me all the necessary details and gave great ideas and feedback. And, the night of the wedding, the entire band was kind, considerate, on time, and completely groovy! I would book this band again in a heartbeat and would recommend them to anyone. It's always been said to me that you remember the food and music at weddings - and I can tell you that it rings true, especially when it comes to Mr. Potato Head. Thank you guys!!!! You ROCK!

Natasha, thank you for your email! I actually wrote a review of Mr. Potato Head on their site on ECE but haven't looked back to see if it was posted so I'm copying JR and Doug on this email. And, am so glad you reached out so I can email you all!

The band SURPASSED our expectations! Truly, from start to finish - Doug and I having our initial conversations about the music selections and flow of the evening - to the night of the wedding - it was absolutely perfect! They were a joy to work with, kept the party going with one friend taking off his tie and demanding an encore when they finished! (he was loving them!), and fulfilled all our wishes, including learning our first dance selection.

You and JR were also a joy to work with! From the very beginning you were patient with me while I made decisions on who to choose and you were always upfront advice-wise and helpful til the end. I sincerely appreciate your help and follow-up. 

I will and already have recommended ECE and Mr. Potato Head and will continue to do so. I bet they will get some follow up requests as our wedding guests loved them too. 

Thank you all, and I have 2 wishes - that I could have that party every weekend AND a current reason to work with you again! But I know who to call should I need music help in the future. :)

Doug: Thank you for a fantastic event Friday night!!! I cannot tell you how many compliments we have received about you all. Everyone had a fantastic time and was asking us who you were and how they could book you for future events. I will certainly be recommending you all for future events in Savannah and the region.

Rick- thank you so much for recommending Mr. Potato head band for the Madhatters Ball. They were the perfect band for the night! Doug and the guys could not have been nicer or easier to work with. They were a huge hit with the members and everyone danced all night. I really appreciate your patience with me this year, it paid off!!

Mr. Potato Head was AWESOME at our wedding. We really couldn't have asked for more. We got a ton of compliments on the music and the flow of the event was great.

We will be recommending them to our friends and wouldn't be surprised if some of our single friends ask for them when they eventually get married.

Thanks again for everything!

Thanks so much for helping us book them. They were unbelievable and we had the best time. The band was easy to work with and they were one of the best if not the best wedding band I've ever seen. Thank you again and we look forward to catching up next weekend at Thomas' wedding. Please relay to Mr. Potato Head that we really had a great time.

All the best,

We searched through hundreds of bands to find Mr. Potato Head. I contacted every booking agent on the east coast that serviced Charlottesville. There were few bands if any that had close to their amazing singing voices and musicianship but none that came close to matching their versatility and song list (which is amazingly solid) covering the classics (like you have to for a wedding) but having plenty of out of the ordinary songs that allowed them to personalize the evening to our tastes.

On the actual night we were all blown away. They really know how to work a crowd, and the dance floor was packed the entire night. Just as an example our photographer was suppose to leave at 9 but stuck around for 2 more hours, just to listen to them play. When their last set finished and I took the mic to say goodnight, our guests would have none of it, they wanted more Mr. Potato Head and despite the fact that they had a 3hr drive ahead of them they played a three song encore. It was amazing. 

Also they nailed our wedding song (and learned another song for the mother-son dance at no charge). I could go on, but who wants to read a long review, you can't go wrong with these guys!

Many thanks for the phenomenal job that you did performing at our daughter's wedding. You were professional and talented. Kaley and Jeff's desire was to have a band that could keep people dancing and enjoying the reception. That was definitely accomplished! Everyone danced and love it! You were also gracious to allow Jeff to "show off" a little, which really help personalize the evening.

Many thanks!

Thank you for reaching out!

We couldn't have been more pleased with Mr. Potato Head. They looked professional and played perfectly for our venue and our guests. We received numerous compliments from our guests about how great the band was.

I will definitely reach back out to you should I have any entertainment needs arise in the future. I really appreciate all of your help!

We had an awesome time - I wish I had $100 for each time someone has dropped by my office to tell me what a great time they had at the Gala and how much they enjoyed having Mr. Potato Head.

You guys were, I dare say, the best wedding band of all time! While your promotional video doesn't nearly do you the justice that you deserve, we could tell upon first viewing that Mr. Potato Head would offer the kind of musical variety we were looking for. So many people have remarked that they couldn't remember the last wedding they attended in which everybody seemed to be having such a good time. From Al Green to Neil Diamond, from reggae to funk, we felt like the evening's entertainment had been tailor-fit to our particular musical tastes, and for that we?ll be forever appreciative. Though our praise may appear a bit over-the-top, the choice of a band for our wedding was one of the only decisions left completely up to us. And since we both love music and enjoy getting out on the dance floor, we knew that a very special band was not only necessary, but essential. Not only did Mr. Potato Head perform to our expectations, you exceeded them about ten minutes into the evening. So thank you so much, not only for being such an incredible group of performers, but for being such a genuinely nice, inviting, and accommodating group of people.

I just wanted to say what a great time I, and everyone else, had Saturday night! We have been doing that event for years now and I swear it has never been that much fun and I think that was all due to you guys! It had a whole new energy and that is just awesome... y'all just make people happy and that is very cool!

Mr. Potato Head were absolutely amazing!!!!! We got so many compliments on them and they were just perfect! So easy to work with and everyone had a great time! My only issue was I got stuck doing "wedding" stuff and all I wanted to do was jam out to the band. I honestly went to their website to see if they did any shows, b/c I would definitely go check them out.

They were just perfect and really made our day special. Thank you so much for helping us find the perfect band!

I do not know if praise can do justice. The Mr. Potato Head was perfect! Everything we hoped for and more. Every song was played with excellence, including the requested songs for the first dance, father/daughter dance and mother/son dance and fun aspects, such as, the tossing of the bouquet and garter toss. You gave us a tremendous recommendation and I thank you very much for your help. I believe Bethany has the groups email address so we will send our regards to them, but next time you are in contact please send my Many Thanks! East Coast Entertainment and Mr. Potato Head will be at the top of our recommendation list, as well as, any future events we may have.

Thank you,

Mr. Potato Head were AMAZING! Everyone had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed them! Thank you so much for lining them up for our event. We have heard excellent things about them and they definitely helped make that adult social a success!

Thank you again and I will definitely contact you when our next big event comes up! Have a great day and talk to you soon.

I cannot begin to tell you how awesome Mr. Potato Head was!! We had compliments from the guests all night. To give you an example, the band played music during dinner and we had someone say they thought we were playing music over speakers. He could not believe it was a live band. My daughter and her fiance requested a new song for the first dance, "Swept Away" by the Avett Brothers. The bride and groom thought they sang it better than the original artists. They kept the crowd going all night. Everyone wanted to know where we found them! I said you of course. Thank you so much for suggesting Mr. Potato Head. Unbelievable group of artists!!! Truly talented musicians. Thanks

The band was great. lots of people said how much they liked them....and one of the best wedding bands they have seen. Working with them was great. Good attitudes are really helpful.

Wow! Talk about a great night! Mr. Potato Head really made our event outstanding.  In fact guests are still talking about what a fun night it was.

Not only are the musicians outstanding, the song repertoire is excellent. They can play many songs that other bands do not even dare to cover! The band knows how to get the crowd up and dancing and I think all 150 people in attendance at the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Presidents' Dinner was on their feet having a blast. There were so many people dancing the staff had to move the tables back to make more room on the dance floor!

Mr. Potato Head made the evening and I would give them my highest recommendation. You simply can't get a better band!
